Tulip Festival

 I love Thanksgiving Point gardens.  I especially love the Tulip Festival.  This was a perfect day in April to go.  It was overcast, so not too hot or too cold.  I wish my camera could capture the beauty of this place.  I love it so much.
 I had to wear my glasses for ten weeks prior to getting my eye surgery.  I wish I would have remembered to take them off.  Oh well.  I sure love my girls. 
 I love the way they put colors together.  They are amazing.
 Brielle is my little climber.  She loves to climb and she is so careful so I don't worry about her very much when she is climbing.
 Again another picture of my kids smelling flowers.
 What a cheezy grin. 
I love this picture.  This is probably the best one I got.  What vibrant colors!

Jaron's Birthday

 My nephew, Jaron, turned 2 (in April, still catching up).  I love this boy, seriously love this boy.  I have told Shell many times if I knew I could get a clone of this boy, I would get pregnant ASAP.  He is so good natured and loving and sweet and cute and I could go on and on.  Shell and Ryan put on this awesome party with outdoor games, indoor hide and seek glow in the dark egg hunt, indoor games and fun presents.  I love this lower picture of him with his Buzz hat.  He looks so awesome.
 Shell made this amazing soccer cake.  Didn't she do a great job?  Happy birthday Jaron.  We sure love you sweet boy!

Brooklyn's stacking abilities

I love this girl.  Really I do.  There are many times I joke about wanting to sell her for a few days, but she does capture your heart.  If you have ever been around her for an extended period of time, you know she pushes buttons, doesn't listen and drives me INSANE most of the time.  If you have only been around her a little amount of time, you think she is this talking adult in a child's body.  She charms everyone she meets and I love her for that.  She is such a loving child and I love that about her as well.  One of the things I love about her are her OCD tendencies.  She loves to stack things and line things up.  She made this stack all by herself with NO help.  If I don't watch her closely, she will stack sour cream, line up socks or line up things on a shelf at the store.  I find it so funny but we may have issues with it in the future.  Only time will tell.  What a cutie.

 I love the zoo.  I have to admit this was not always the case but now that I have kids, I love to watch them and their excitement.  We went in April and this was the biggest turtle I have seen there!  He was huge!
 Then of course the picture of them on the tigers. 
 This one is classic. 
 My girls love the playground, probably more than seeing the animals really.  We went just last week (September) and the playground was closed and I almost asked for my money back.  I was so sad.  We may not be going again until they open up the playground!  The rocky shores exhibit was cool though.  I am almost through me catch up!
